Quilt is a remote funeral service that uses a digital platform and video hardware to help people plan and hold a dignified dual in-person and virtual funeral for lost loved ones during COVID-19. Its customizable planning template system helps family members, funeral home staff, and clergy members easily and efficiently plan a funeral service. Users can sync to social media for posting obituary information, coordinating guest lists, and sending out invitations. By transferring audio-like singing and talking into personalized visual presentations for certain parts of the ceremony, Quilt enables on-site participants to experience the supportive presence of online guests.
